About Us

HR Tech Solutions is committed to offering superior human resource tools to Brokers and Employers. Co-founded by two business owners with backgrounds as insurance providers and human resource managers, we have the experience and knowledge to serve you right.

HR Tech Solutions grew out of the need to provide technology consulting and resources to Employer Healthcare Broker Firms. Through the experience of both partners, there was a visible struggle and sometimes impossibility for Brokers to obtain new clients and maintain existing clients without technology. The “right” technology can be a “game changer” but these firms are not technology experts. HR Tech Solutions serves as the technology arm by providing consulting services, system builds, carrier connection builds & support, benefit administration systems, training and on-going customer service support for clients.

We offer implementation and technology solutions for Employers as well. HR Tech Solutions will consult on selecting the right system, assist in integrating new systems with your team, and provide ongoing maintenance and training.

Leslie Garoufalis

Co-Founder

Leslie has been involved in various forms of Benefits Administration and Human Resources during her 25 years in the insurance industry. She has served as a Human Resource Manager and Large Account Manager for a Third-Party Administrator. In addition, Leslie also worked as a Large Account Case Manager for an Enrollment Firm where her main responsibility was coordinating open enrollment communication and coordinating a variety of benefit administration enrollment platforms. In 2008 Leslie began working as an independent contractor serving as a liaison between benefit insurance carriers and their clients to provide strategies and solutions that improve performance and employee satisfaction. Having spent over 10 years working with clients and brokers, it became clear that implementing a robust benefit administration system was the key to streamlining processes — and in turn, putting the focus on offering competitive compensation and benefit packages to employees. It was then that she began the journey with Deanna to develop HR Tech Solutions. Using both of their talents and expertise to bring best-in-class Benefit Administration, HRIS System Consulting and HR Consulting to the Brokerage community allows them to focus on what they do best — delivering high-value technology solutions for their clients.
